Limonitz is a mint-flavored sparkling lemonade that is sugar-sweetened
and USDA Organic certified. It’s tart and tangy, with a nice balance of
sweetness and citrus in the body of the drink. The carbonation gives the
flavor some depth, while the mint finish is a nice addition. All in all, the
the taste is very straightforward and enjoyable albeit a full calorie drink..
It definitely seems like a nice approach to the organic soda set.
Reviews for Sept. 2013
The “Joe’s Summer Blend” of Red Jacket cold-pressed juices is a mix of
apples, lemon juice and vitamin C. While it’s cold-pressed (like many high
end apple ciders), this isn’t the same stuff that’s commonly being
marketed as cold-pressed juice. In any case, for a bottle of pasteurized
apple and lemon juice, this product is quite tasty, with a flavor that’s
effectively like mixing a splash of apple juice into a bottle of lemonade.

The Lemon Ginger Cayenne flavor of Townshend Tea’s Brew Dr.
Kombucha is probably about as much of an “Original” flavor as you’ll find.
And it’s a very good one, with a nice twist (cayenne) on the ubiquitous
lemon ginger flavor that’s a part of just about every kombucha line out
there. That said, the base flavor of this product should be very familiar to
anyone who has sampled kombucha. It has a lightly fermented flavor, but
cane sugar, lemon and ginger flavors quickly cut it.
This drink unfortunately has a definite protein bitterness, which is to be
expected from a product with 12g of protein per bottle. It also has a little bit
of stevia aftertaste. The other functional ingredients, which include green
tea extract, guarana, flax oil, spriulina extract, chlorella extract, fenugreek
extract, yerba mate, konjac, calcium, and B vitamins, seem to impart a
“functional” bite to the product. It's definitely packed with many things but
great taste isn't one of them.
Not Recommended (based on taste not function.)
